Here is a collection of Soviet snipers in Afghanistan during the Soviet military presence there in 1979-1989. This first guy is a Soviet record holder – sergeant Vladimir Ilyin has shot a Mujahideen chief commander from a record distance of 1350 meter away from his sniper rifle. That’s over one kilometer away or over 4,449 feet! Inside are some more snipers!

    It’s almost funny to see how history keeps on repeating itself in afganistan. First the sovjet fighting taliban, who on there side got fundings and weapons from the usa. Now the usa is fighting the taliban who get there funding and weapons from Pakistan. Guess who the taliban is going to fight with in about 10-15 years…

    God bless Soviet soldiers for liberating Europe. If US didnt meddle today Afghanistan would be liveable country.
